Our little "store"....

Hello Friends!

Many of you are aware that Keith and I have undertaken a new venture. We leased a little space in the Marketplace at Teaberry, and have spent today, laying carpet, and cleaning tables and hanging shelves. We do not have much space, about 48 square feet, and we do not have much stock, but Rome was'nt built in a day either...

Here are a few links: FB:


It has been a real adventure, and so much fun getting our little nook together, and we have tons more to do, like name it! I am really enjoying making things for it, and hitting all the yard sales for rusty gold. The best part, is getting to do it with Keith. We have long wanted a shop, or at one time a restaurant, of our very own, and now we have it. Just have to get stocked up!

Here is a before picture:

and here is an after picture:

It is really fun and exciting....
Stay tuned for updates!!

Secret Sister Box Swap............

Hello Friends!

Well, it seems the Secret Sister Box swap is a smashing success!!!!!!

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am, to see such great participation... 27 girls the first round, all of the great video' and streams as we get to open each one, and most importantly, all of the great friendships that have grown closer.

I could not have wished for a better outcome. Thanks for all of the participation, and the interest to keep it going! Because of the great response, and all the girls who missed out in Round 1, I have decided to have a round 2......

So Round 1 girls.... you still have 3 days to get your box mailed. If Life has intervened, please, please, just e-mail me! I got your back!!!!!
If you need an extra day, to make payday, that is fine. Just please e-mail me and let me know!

Also-- if you do not get a box... I need to know that too. Give it until 3/25/12, and shoot me an e-mail, and I will check up on your status.

I think we will keep the same rules for round 2... quick sign up and fast turn around, it seemed to work for everyone. So, if you want to be a part of round 2... here is what you do..... leave a comment on this post by 3/31/12, and e-mail me your mailing details to Title the e-mail Round 2 Box Swap, and make your e-mail so I can forward it to your secret sister. I wind up with your address, and so will your secret sister. If sharing your address is a problem, unfortunately you cannot swap. Please include your YouTube, Twitter, and Blog addresses in the e-mail. I will close round 2 sign ups on 3/31/12 and your box must be posted by 4/15/12. 2 weeks to complete it! International girls are encouraged to participate, but keep in mind.... the post takes a long time, and it is more expensive. I randomly select the secret sisters, so if you cannot afford to have an international sister, I am sorry you cannot swap... catch us next round.

Hopefully that is not too many rules, and I encourage you all to get in on the fun! The reactions and the art work has been Fabulous!!! Decorate a box approximately 4 inches wide x 8 inches long in a manner your sister would love, and fill the box with handmade craft, or items from your stash. We prefer hand made, but if you have to shop, I will not tell you no!

Any questions? e-mail me!
